Stone is divided into natural stone and artificial stone. Among our four home improvement stones today, marble and granite belong to natural stone, while quartz stone and slate belong to artificial stone.
Natural marble has a unique natural texture, natural color difference texture, dense structure, good rigidity, high hardness, wear resistance and dirt resistance, relatively simple maintenance, and relatively long service life. In addition, the texture of marble is natural, It is very decorative, smooth and flat, so it is often used for large-area decoration, such as floors and walls.
Granite is a magmatic rock formed by the condensation of magma below the surface of the earth. It has the same high-quality appearance as marble. Granite has a dense structure, hard texture, good acid and alkali resistance, and good weather resistance. However, its patterns are spotty and there is no obvious pattern formation. , so granite is generally used in outdoor spaces, and indoors are usually only used in small areas.
3. Quartz stone
The biggest feature of quartz stone is that it is a new type of stone artificially synthesized by 90% quartz crystal, resin and other trace elements. Its appearance is very close to the feeling of stone; Very strong, high temperature resistance; high anti-fouling performance, clean water or ordinary detergent can be cleaned. However, it has less texture, and its appearance can only be said to be average. The most common place to see it in home decoration is on the kitchen countertop.
Slate is a typical artificial stone. It is made by mixing natural stone powder and other materials under high temperature pressure and firing. It is resistant to high temperature and corrosion. It will not affect it too much when placed on the bottom of a hot pot; the surface of the board is non-porous , stains are not easy to penetrate, easy to clean, the texture usually imitates marble or solid color, environmental protection and non-toxic, it is a very popular decorative plate in recent years. However, with the current technology, it is still difficult to make special-shaped rock slabs, which are more suitable for use as countertops and walls.
